New song by composer/arranger: “Yismach Moshe”

by yossi July 21, 2010

Shalom Moskowitz, a native of Antwerp, Belgium, scion of a family of well known chazzanim, understood like everyone in the world of music, that you cannot rely on music to make a living, so he became a designer of exclusive jewellery.

Besides being a jeweler, Moskowitz has written and composed hundreds of songs over the years, “the boys in yeshiva would sing my songs every erev shabbos”, he reveals. Songs piled up in his drawer until he had enough material for a top quality album. “I listen constantly to good music, lately I noticed that there is a lack of songs with the depth and beauty of those in the heyday of hassidic music. I became inspired with the need to take my music, put a cover on it and bring it out”, says Moskowitz.

His full-length album will be called “Enthusiasm” (Hitlahavut). The title came naturally whilst working on the music. “All those who collaborated on the album became enthused by the music, the way the notes were written, the lyrics, the tunes, to the point that the creative process and working together gave birth to a title for the album which expresses its very essence in one word.” The album introduces a refreshing concept: a hassidic ensemble which sounds like a boys choir from the 70′s. “What is called a good song? A song that from the first time you hear it makes you want to join in, and that the second time you hear it you can already sing along with it…” explains Moskowitz.

The album will be varied, so as to gain everybody’s enthusiasm, it will include different kinds of accents and a broad range of musical styles. The first song to be released is “Yismach Moshe”, which encaptures the flavour of the album –a middle-eastern rhythm sung with hassidic intonation, combining Jewish feeling and gives expression to music both captivating and unifying. The song is sung by Avreimi Roth and child prodigy Yanky Barmatz.

As was mentioned, the song itself was composed produced and arranged by Shalom Moskowitz, a rising star in the world of music composition and arrangement.
